I drank a pint of nettle infusion daily (I had been doing this for a couple of years prior to pg as well) and I think it really helped me. It's so rich in minerals and chlorophyll...I knew it would take care of me. I didn't want anything at all to eat or drink during labor but the minute my son was born, I downed a pint of nettle and took a dropperful of motherwort tincture. The placenta didn't deliver for 45 minutes after his birth (so I took another dropperful of motherwort) and when it did, I bled quite a bit. I felt tired and weak but not dangerously so. I definitely credit the nettle and motherwort for this.
Anyone know of anything that would help a reluctant placenta come out? I seem to have a history of this happening and I would like to be better prepared this time around.
